Shipping to Athens

When you are making your plans to have a car shipped to Athens, you should know ahead of time which type of transport you want to use to ship the vehicle. You can use the following information to help determine which type of transport suits your vehicle best:

  • Open Carrier Transport: Open carrier transport is the most common type of auto shipping in the world. You have most likely seen many open carriers on the interstates traveling across the U.S. They are large, most often double-decker trucks, that can carry anywhere from one to 12 vehicles at one time. Open carriers are excellent for vehicles that are driven at least once or twice, or more often, weekly. They can carry cars, trucks, vans and sport utility vehicles and are generally the lowest cost to ship vehicles. If you have a large SUV or truck, you may need to pay a fee for having an oversized vehicle as these larger vehicles will usually take up more space on the carrier and the company will not be able to haul as many cars as they would if all vehicles were standard sized. Cars are exposed to the elements, but not more than if they were being driven.
  • Enclosed Carrier Transport: Owners of highly expensive classics, exotics, luxury and sports cars usually prefer to use enclosed carrier transport when shipping their valuable investments. Enclosed carriers are secure, often climate controlled and can safely transport the most delicate of vehicles. An enclosed carrier will cost on average between 30% and 60% more than an open carrier will cost, but when you have a very expensive vehicle, the benefits of a secure shipping environment will greatly outweigh the cost of the carrier.
